Anonymous. The author is identified as 'J. Kennedy, M.P.' in an advertisement printed on the verso of the front wrapper of the June 1833 issue of Arnold's Magazine of the Fine Arts (see copy bound in PC 14.(5), q.v.). There the date of publication is set for 15th June and the price of the pamphlet put at 2s. 6d.
